61.181 Carrier to file supplement when notified of suspension. Section 204 of the Act empowers the Commission either upon com. plaint or upon its own motion to suspend the operations of proposed charges, regulations, classifications, or practices pending investigation of the lawfulness thereof. Whenever an order of suspension is received by a carrier against whose schedules the order of suspension is directed, it shall be the duty of such carrier to file immediately a supplement which shall bear no effective date, but shall announce to the public and to the Commission that such schedules are suspended until the date stated in the order of suspension; and reference in such supplement shall be made to the tariffs or supplements where schedules remaining in effect will be found during the period of suspension or until further ordered by the Commission.*+ [Rule 15 (a)]

61.182 Contents of supplement announcing suspension. (a) When the order of the Commission directs the suspension of a part of a publication which, except as to such part, is allowed to become effective, the supplement announcing the suspension shall also contain in reissued items the charges and regulations applicable during the period of suspension, or shall make specific reference by FCC number or numbers, to the tariff, or supplements where they will be found. [Rule 15 (b)]

(b) When the Commission has suspended a supplement in whole or in part, it may occur that prior to the filing of the supplement announcing suspension, a carrier will file a later supplement containing, as reissues, the matter suspended in the previous supplement. In such instances the suspension supplement required by the rules in this part shall also specifically cancel from the later supplement such reissued matter, and by amendment to the title page of said later supplement shall eliminate the cancelation of the suspended supplement when the latter is suspended in full, and when a supplement is suspended in part shall provide that such later supplement cancels such previous supplement except portions under suspension. Tardiness in filing supplements announcing suspension may result in the rejection by the Commission of the supplement which cancels the suspended matter.** [Rule 15 (c)]

61.183 Waiver of limitation on amount of supplemental matter allowed. When the Commission suspends schedules in tariffs or supplements the Commission's rule relating to amount of supplemental matter allowed will be waived.*+ [Rule 15 (d)]

**For statutory and source citations, see note to § 61.1. It is further ordered, That any authority herein or heretofore granted by which any person is authorized to hold the position of officer or director of more than one carrier subject to the Communications Act of 1934 shall automatically expire on the 17th day of December 1934, unless such person shall have filed application for authority to hold such position of officer or director of more than one carrier subject to the Act in conformity with the last preceding paragraph hereof. Order 7, FCC, Nov. 1934.

61.184 Vacation of suspension order; supplements announcing same, etc. If upon final determination by the Commission matter suspended is found not unlawful, and the Commission directs that the order of suspension be vacated or the case dismissed, the affected carrier or carriers shall issue a supplement or revised page announcing the vacation of the order of suspension and provide by proper publication for the application of the lawful schedules and otherwise comply with such orders of the Commission as it may make.** [Rule 15 (@))
